Our Venue

Situated amid sunflower fields in a peaceful rural area on the outskirts of the medieval World Heritage site of Carcassonne, our 200-year-old stone barn has been uniquely converted in Art Deco style, with large, open living spaces within the house – and a raised dais – making it ideal for performance or team training events. There is also a digital grand piano.

We offer our clients the ultimate in relaxation in graceful and superior surroundings. The gardens are lovely and our resident red squirrels are most entertaining! There are several terraces, a large private pool with a barbecue area for al fresco dining, an all-weather tennis court, a covered table-tennis area and a petanque (boules) pitch. We also have an indoor games room with pool-table and a classic 1950s juke box. Bicycles are available for anyone inclined towards a gentle pedal along the shady towpaths of the nearby Canal du Midi.

The 8 individually-designed, ensuite bedrooms are double, twin or triple-sized. All have AC units, hairdryers and CD players. Towels are provided for both indoor and outdoor use. Two ground-floor rooms are suitable for guests with mobility limitations. Two of the bedrooms have balconies, offering superb views of the Pyrenees to the south and the Black Mountains to the north.
